There are many great pictures of the Boston Marathon. Of course the stars of the event are the runners. Marathons provide drama, they are tough races that test the human spirit. Add to the mix yesterdays hot weather and cool photos abound.
But, I like this one, it tells the story of another side of the Boston Marathon. The story of the spectators. The sideliners enjoying the legendary and massive social/media/sporting experience from off road. The curb dwellers deflecting the sun while rooting for their friends and loved ones. The cheering devotees rooting for the runners that are challenging their limits while generating contributions for worthy causes. The fans rooting for the super human runner that glides through 26.2 miles at a sub 5 minute pace.
